Someone please prove me wrong about Harry Reid being the ultimate in corrupt, party-before-country, untrustworthy, political hack.
Harry Reid says; “Rich people want to pay more taxes.” Where is the proof for that? Friend me on Facebook – if you dare. No one turned away.
Where are the throngs of rich people who pay extra taxes now – which they are perfectly within their rights to do so?
Where are all the rich people who don’t take advantage of loopholes, corporations, who don’t keep copious records of expenses, create tax dodges, hire accountants, lawyers, consultants, and spend a fortune in an effort to not pay taxes?
Harry Reid came to the Senate of modest means, but now he’s rich: Do you think he pays more in taxes than he’s supposed to?
Do you think the people collecting bags of cash on his behalf claim all the money they’re supposed to?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it until everyone finally understands: Big business and large corporations do not pay taxes. These guys have an army of accountants ready to determine how to legally avoid taxes through laws passed by the government. Once they figure that out, then they increase prices to the products they make which again hurts middle-class America.
Consumers pay the taxes. Wages are suppressed. The Fed prints money, which makes your dollars and savings worth less. Your investments return less and less. Nearly nothing, have you noticed? The Fed is literally screwing you and you do nothing about it. You’re taking it.
And while we’re on the subject – what about these idiot actors who make millions, then run around saying they think they should be paying more? You don’t think they have corporations to avoid taxes? Think they don’t contribute to SEP-IRA’s in order to keep large swaths of their income safe from the tax-man? Don’t think there’s an off-shore account or two connected to Hollywood?
Because if you don’t think there’s a high-paid CPA or two in Southern California working overtime to keep the Executive Producer’s and Movie Star’s money where it belongs – in the earner’s pockets – you’re as dumb as they are.
What’s sad is some of these actor’s make their money because they know how to pretend. They pretend to be other people; they make their riches; they hide as much of their riches from the taxman; then they go on TV and pretend they want to pay more taxes so the idiots who watch their movies will love them and want to pay more taxes too. What does that do for job creation? It’s maddening. But not as maddening as people like Warren Buffett:
Warren Buffett is a big-time Barack Obama supporter. Why?
Why would a kick-ass, superman Capitalist like Warren Buffett support a never-had-a-job-in-his-life, wouldn’t-know-what-a-payroll-was, Socialist like Barack Obama? It’s simple: Because Mr. Buffett’s a really smart guy.
Warren Buffett is a billionaire for a good reason: He knows how to invest. He doesn’t care who’s in office, or who’s making the rules – he just needs to know what the rules are so he can invest and make billions. He played us like a fiddle:
Obama needed a smart investor like Buffett to endorse his economic policies and Buffett needed to know what the rules were going to be. When he determined the XL pipeline wasn’t going through, Buffett bought the Burlington Railroad, put $500 million into Suncor Tar Sands, endorsed Barack Obama’s insane ideas to make the economy grow and there you have it: A few more bucks for Warren, a trillion goes from the taxpayers to Obama’s cronies and the unions, $3 a gallon gasoline, the talking point that Buffett’s “secretary pays more than he does in taxes” is emailed out and Warren and Barack both smile for the cameras! Talk about actors..
Can you feel your ass tightening?
But don’t worry – Harry Reid says rich people want to pay more taxes!! Really? Then tell me, Harry Reid – why is Warren Buffett spending millions of dollars fighting the IRS, who says his investment firm owes $1 billion in back taxes?
Indeed, Mr. Buffett recently wrote in The New York Times that he should be paying more to the federal government. He called on Washington lawmakers to up tax rates on the rich. Why doesn’t he just pay the billion?
It’s simple: Because Mr. Buffett’s a really smart guy. And Harry Reid is the ultimate in corrupt, party-before-country, untrustworthy, political hack.

The U.S. Senate was expected this week to renew dozens of temporary tax breaks, known as the “extenders,” including big ones for business research, wind power and foreign profits. Senate aides said on Sunday that Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid planned to handle some nominations first, then take up the tax bill sent over from the House of Representatives. The House voted on Dec. 3 to renew retroactively back to Jan. 1, 2014 a 55-item package of extenders tax breaks. The Senate approved a $1.1 trillion spending bill late on Saturday, preventing a federal government shutdown.
